How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Be prepared to hike at least 10 miles. You can do it with less with the right observations and equipment. The most obvious solution takes about 10 miles of hiking. There are trails most of the way but the last portions of each hiking stage are well off the beaten path through rough terrain. There is heavy GPS interference from trees even in Winter. This cache contains multiple types of cache containers (Micros, Small, Regular, Large, and Virtual).

Pirates have a penchant for devious methods of hiding their bountyand using puzzles to log where it is hidden. North Carolina has a long history with seafaring Pirates. This cache works to bring a piece of that history inland. This quest will take you on an adventure with one of the Lakefaring Pirates around Greensboro NC. There will be puzzles and loot a plenty. There is something in it for you even if you do not make it all the way to the final cache location.
